“Don't be afraid of goodbye. You may lose something good. But you might also gain something better.” I assured Elizabeth.
“What would be better?” Elizabeth asked looking at me with tears in her eyes.
“You have no idea how much I like you, how much you make me smile, how much I love talking to you, or how much I wish you were mine. You're smart, cute, funny, and can always make smile. To me, you're perfect. One problem: You're his, not mine.”
“Please Justin; I don’t want to get hurt again can’t you see? It’s happened 1 too many times and that’s good enough for me. You say you want to make this work, but do you really mean it? I really want to believe you but it’s so hard when I’ve been in this position before. You say such sweet things and mean them now, but will you still mean it later? I know you want me and I want you too, but it’s just so hard to make work. What would hurt the worst was if you changed your mind…….”
“My mind wouldn’t change about you Elizabeth” I said.
You say it won’t and I want to believe it, but it’s just so hard to be able to conceive it.”
“We want each other so badly, so please let’s try to make this work”
“I can’t have this conversation with you right now. I need to leave right now!” Elizabeth said while walking back towards the house.
I grabbed her arm and stopped her from walking.
“Can you just stay over for a little longer?” I pleaded.
